|My Time is Yours|
I've zoomed with friends, with business associates and family. It works very well! I was with 22 business friends discussing our industry and worked out so well.
God, Family, Country.
I did it the other night. I found out that if you wear the right clothes and pick the right background you can ghost in and out of the display. I used that to amuse myself while my girlfriend talked to her friends.
"The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."
"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford, "it is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them. They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards."
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard, then the wrong lizard might get in."
I just downloaded and completed my first Zoom meeting 10 min ago. I was impressed by how smoothly it went. That's great, b/c I dumped Skype when MS took it over.
I haven't used it, but my daughter has been using it for her college classes. She says it is rather nifty and works as designed.
No thanks, I've already got a penguin.
Any privacy or data mining concerns? Same as skype, webex (for consumer usages, not corp)?
Just the normal question in the context of: if a product is free, then you are the product. If gtg, then maybe I'll give it a try.

My daughter is going to be using it for classes also. She says it works pretty well.
Also have friends in real estate who have been using it for meetings and have reported that it works very smoothly
No, Daoism isn't a religion
My aikido dojo has gone to Zoom classes. Unfortunately I missed the first session yesterday due to illness (not a virus! Have an abscessed molar). Heard it went pretty well all things considered. Hopefully I can make the second installment tomorrow.

I used it last night to get my daughter to her ballet class. It worked well.

I had never even heard of it until 8 days ago. I am on day 7 and am an expert now. Hosting meetings with friends in 6 states now.
I am sure big brother can watch everything if they want to. There are a bunch of privacy and do not record settings I have turned on to at least keep privacy from most folks.
I have a few SIGs.
Oh great, now I have the frik'in Zoom theme song stuck in my head.
Sliced bread, the greatest thing since the 1911.
We have been using Defense Collaboration Services (DCS) for most of our work from home needs, but today we used Zoom for a small meeting and I thought it was great. Some of the group had a few issues with muting and unmuting but for a free app I think it's great.
|I can't think of|
I use it for work. My 6 year old uses it to connect with his friends. I think his class will begin using it next week as well.

My son is using it for his piano lessons. My daughter is doing her PTSD counseling sessions using it starting Friday.
A penny saved is a government oversight.

I was Zooming often before, now it is nearly constant.

1st time today.
My kindergartener had a 30 minute lesson. What a freaking nightmare!!!!!!
19 Kindergarteners on all at the same time.
Everybody’s got a blank page. A story they’re writing today. A wall that they’re climbing. You can carry the past on your shoulders.
Or you can start over.
Regrets, no matter what you goin’ through. Jesus, He gave it all to save you. He carried the cross on His shoulders. So you can start over.
I have not 'Zoomed' but my son's high school here in NH (Pinkerton Academy) is using Zoom for the Remote Learning Program they rolled out last week for 3400 students. From what I've seen, Zoom is very capable platform and the AV works well. I was also impressed with the options to toggle Video off and the other Privacy features, which I'm sure are viewed very favorably by schools, parents & students alike.
If Some is Good, and More is Better.....then Too Much, is Just Enough !!
We have it loaded on the home system, seems to work well. I use Skype For Business at work.

"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012
"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."
Charles Triplett O’Ferrall of Virginia - In Congress, May 1, 1888
Our classes at my school are going to incorporate Zoom with Canvas for our distance learning for the rest of the semester. I attended my first training webinar today. It seems to work pretty well. Better than my experience with Skype.
|I'm not laughing |
I just finished my second year working for Zoom. I love it here. Zoom is considered one of the best places to work in America. I Zoom all day long!
